More Paper Cuts

I'm trying my hand at paper cutting!

I'm using this book to help me out.

Yesterday, we learned about the single fold that produces two images on a sheet of paper.

Today, let's try the double fold.

We'll start with a square sheet of paper. This one is 5 inches by 5 inches.

Fold vertically in half and make a crease.

 Unfold, then fold each side in half toward the center crease. 

 Reverse the direction of the centerfold.

Fold again and crease all the edges.

Draw on a design on the outer panel. 

Cut and unfold. TADA! -- four repeating designs!

Here's another version with a candelabra.

Please stop by tomorrow for a new technique!
